jcnmark6: Sorry I cannot read French but I did look at the auction you listed. I have a gold-plated Cigar Cutter that is a really good saxophone. The auction did not list a serial number nor did it adequately portray the famous cigar-cutter octave mechanism so I was unable to determine if the saxophone pictured was really a Cigar Cutter. If it is, it should be a nice horn, especially in silver. DAVE

I read french:

It is listed as a silver alto SELMER cigar cutter in very good shape, serial number 17695. Silver is apparently 100%.

It is for sale by an antique shop which specializes in musical instruments. Check out the pictures on his site:

He has a Adolph Sax alto for sale.

Everything at //perso.wanadoo.fr seems a little "rough"...
